Welcome to my blog

I started this blog in November 2009 to record my journey back to health and fitness. I need to lose weight but as I am fairly fit (and I believe fat does not necessarily mean unfit) my main thrust now is to settle myself into a routine of healthy eating and enjoyable exercise that will sustain me into old age.

I hope you comment if you want to and that you gain something from reading of my trials and tribulations

Mid March Update

Where does the time go?

Two weeks ago I decided to make a new start and just try to rein in my bad habits.

I've had a couple of good weeks and lost 3lbs.

My study time before work seems to be more effective than after a long, hard day and the gym isn't as busy as I thought it would be at 6pm. So all in all it is going well.

Hubby has been cooking our evening meals more often recently and serving mine on a smaller plate or bowl so he is looking after me too. Love you xx

I thought you might like to see my summery tray that brightens up breakfast time. This is a bowl of porridge made with half and half oats and Sainsburys Free From Rice and Buckwheat Flakes and unsweetened soya milk. Topped with Be Good To Yourself Greek Yogurt, a small banana and a drizzle of maple syrup. Delicious.

This was yesterday's breakfast in progress - a pancake made with 2 eggs, a packet of Aldi's instant oat cereal, loads of cinnamon and some blueberries. Don't you love the pancake slice? We bought it for £1 in Poole Pottery of all places. I topped the pancake with Clearspring Apricot and Apple puree. It kept me full all morning.

And how about this for a cool idea? Pitta Pizza Marinara. Wholemeal pitta breads spread with red pesto then topped with mashed sardines and grated cheddar. Pop under the grill until the cheese melts and starts to brown. These were absolutely delicious and will be on the menu again soon.

And now for something completely different :0)

Hubby has been busy this week building a dry stone wall at home. He added another couple of rows roadside after I took this and it is finished now. Looks fabulous and he managed to save all of the snowdrops and tiny sprouts of daffodils. He has been saving stone since we moved in - in 1991.

And after all that typing and uploading of photos it's time for tea. Mine's a redbush in my little teapot. This always puts me in mind of The Mad Hatter's Tea Party for some reason.

Thanks to my followers for looking in and for any comments. I hope to report more positive news again soon.

    I was saying love the stone wall and also your 3lbs must have winged its way to me, now back to Jan weight, lack of walking in snow and ice is to blame so feel motived by reading your comments.
